A new energy centre being built to support one of the UK’s largest pepper and tomato growing greenhouses has secured £10.6 million in funding from Santander.
The energy centre will supply a major fruit and vegetable producer, which supplies nearly all UK supermarkets, enabling them to cut energy costs and operate more sustainably.
The CHP unit will export power to the grid and produce heat and carbon dioxide, which will be sold to an adjacent tomato growing greenhouse.
Julian Harris, Partner at P3P Partners LLP, said: “We are seeing increased demand for innovative energy solutions and the initiative in Selby, a new project for an established client, is a testament to our business model and vision.”
